Simmons College 
300 The Fenway 
Boston, Massachusetts 
Volume 80 


We are the music makers, 

And we are the dreamers of dreams, 
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, 

And sitting by desolate streams; 
World-losers and world-forsakers, 

On whom the pale moon gleams: 
Yet we are the movers and shakers 

Of the world forever, it seems. 

With wonderful deathless ditties 
We build up the world's great cities, 

And out of a fabulous story 

We fashion an empire's glory: 
One man with a dream, at pleasure, 

Shall go forth and conquer a crown; 
And three with a new song's measure 

Can trample an empire down 

We, in the ages lying, 

In the buried past of the earth, 
Built Nineveh with our mirth; 

And Babel itself with our mirth; 
And O'erthrew them with prophesying 

To the old of the new world's worth; 
For each age is a dream that is dying, 

Or one that is coming to birth . . . 

Arthur O'Shaughnessy 

The growth of a human being 
is a dynamic symphony of 

forces playing in this field 
of force that is ourselves. 

We have not become aware 
of the possibility of arranging 
the entire human enviroment 
as a work of art, as a 
teaching machine designed 
to maximize perception and 
to make everyday learning a 
process of discovery. 

Marsall McLuhan 


We cannot be given 
We can be rightly 
presented with 

proper material for 



The joy of living to the beat 
of human life and not 
to the rhythm enforced 
by the time-keeper. 

Simone Weil 

I rose this morning early to 

get betimes in Boston town; 
Here's a good place at the corner. . . 
I must stand and see the show. 

Walt Whitman 
from Boston Ballad 


...■'.■■■' .■■*■■ - ■■ -v^ 

Every woman who rises above 

the common 

level has received two 

educations: the 

first from her teachers; the 


more personal and important, 

from herself. 

Edward Gibbon 



Let me go forth and share 
The overflowing sun 
With one wise friend, or one 
Better than wise, being fair, 
Where the pewit wheels and dips 
On heights of bracken and ling, 
And Earth unto her leaflet tips, 
Tingles with the Spring. 

Sir William Watson 


Lord Brougham 1828 

in a speech to the House of Commons 


With her calm, aspiring eyes 
She doth tempt the earth to rise, 
With humility over all, 
She doth tempt the sky to fall. 

In her place she still doth stand 
A pattern unto the firm land 
While revolving spheres come round 
To embrace her stable ground.

Evans Democratic Community 

The members of Evans Hall became the first in history of Sim- 
mons College to experience a participatory democracy. Sixty-seven 
seniors make up what is called the Evans Democratic Community. 
We, as a community, created and maintained our own rules and pol- 
icies, separate from the rest of the campus. 

Our Monday night meetings consisted of determining what was 
fair and just for everyone in the community. We set standards for a 
president-of-the-month to interact with the academic campus; and 
we designated members to serve terms on a fairness committee. 
Our topics ranged from those of discussing social events to setting 
an attendance policy. Some meetings were frustrating as the sixty- 
seven strong personalities deliberated; other meetings were un- 
productive; at times we felt as though we were thrown against a 
brick wall — but each time we gathered, it was a step to a tightly-knit 

To the members of EDC, may we look back on Evans and see 
more than the constructs of a building, more than a broken elevator, 
or lack of a bell-desk receptionist. I trust we will also feel a bonding of 
sixty-seven women who grew both as individuals and as a group. 
May we always feel the love and support and commitment dis- 
played to our fellow women during the most volatile time of our col- 
lege career — SENIOR YEAR!

Simmons Hall is the largest dormitory on campus, but 
that doesn't keep its residents from feeling a sense of 
unity! Every floor is a close-knit community and this 
friendliness exists between different floors as well. 
Simmons Hall has enjoyed many activities this year, 
including a Dating Game, tie-dye parties, bagel 
brunches, holiday parties, movie nights, socials with 
fraternities, and an end of the year "beach" party. 


YOU make MESICK, claim members of Mesick Hall here at Simmons. From Ohio to Pakistan, from 
Simmons Cup food fights to tie dyeing, from jellybean winners to great gourmet cooks, we all feel a 
tremendous sense of unity, living together in our home away from home. And WE make MESICK 





Even though Dix Hallers have had to endure the 4 AM 
fire drills, too little or too much heat, and a broken 
candy machine now and then, we were all able to 
have another successful year at Simmons. We had 
some great teas, trips to the circus and ballet, the Win- 
ter Enchantment Ball, angel sisters, secret spooks, 
and our annual year end barbecue. 

To the residents, Dix Hall is more than a place to live 
for several months out of the year — it is our home 
away from home. We have worked hard to make this 
dorm a community in which residents feel happy and 
are comfortable to live in.

The atmosphere of Smith Hall is best 
symbolized by the brightly colored walls. 
Smith is the second largest dorm on 
campus. In addition to housing nearly one 
hundred and forty women, Smith houses 
Quadside Cafe, an exercise room and a 
computer room. Despite the diverse groups 
of people, Smith promotes a feeling of 
togetherness. Enthusiastic students par- 
ticipate in activities such as color wars, the 
roommate game, the dating game (with 
fellow fraternities), barbecues, secret 
spooks, secret santa, movie night and spe- 
cial parties. Smith has captured the true 
sense of Simmons spirit! 


Arnold Hall saw quite a bit of activity this year. As 
always, freshman initiation was a big success and 
a lot of fun. There was a Bugs Bunny brunch and 
several movie nights. Arnold hosted the most 
people for an admissions weekend and ended up 
winning a pizza party from SAVVY. Around the hol- 
idays, a tree was decorated, angel sisters went off 
with a bang and the Grinch and What a Wonderful 
Life were hauled out. On the cultural side, quite a 
few people went to the Moscow Ballet and the 
Vienna Boys' Choir. To round out the year, Arnold 
hosted an incredibly successful party in Alumnae. 
With the hall filled to capacity and a line of people 
flowing out onto Brookline, Arnold realized it had 
one huge party on its hands. Not to be forgotten, in 
the wake of the party, is the annual Arnold tea, 
where everyone in the hall is recognized. As usual, 
Arnold had one spirited year, and it is expected that 
that spirit will carry over into 1989-90. 

President and Friends 



We're the oldest dorm and still very tradi- 
tional. We've established an annual formal 
tea. Inner dorm activities include: holiday 
parties, monthly movie and floor snacks, 
the roommate game, the ugliest RA con- 
test, lingerie parties and dorm dinners. Our 
motto: There is always something cooking 
at South." We hate apathy and consider our- 
selves a classy, charitable and caring dorm. 
Besides, we survived the Sports Center 



North Hall is a cozy, friendly hall with lots of nice people and exception- 
ally nice freshwomen. Things we'll never forget this year are: 

— Great teas on Friday 

— The construction! 

— The holiday party 

Good luck to all the graduating seniors!

The impact of the new Sports and Fitness Center on 
the Simmons community will be positive in many 
ways: 1) it will increase both the Admissions inquiry 
pool and ultimately the yield; 2) it will provide the op- 
portunity on campus for recreational and intramural 
activities; and 3) it will improve the quality of the Phys- 
ical Education program as well as the athletic teams. 
Less tangible, but most significantly, is the hope that 
the Sports and Fitness Center will improve the quality 
of life at Simmons through enhanced programming 
on many fronts as well as being a place that will cen- 
tralize the feeling of community.

The first design of a modern gymnasi 
was included in the early planning stages of 
the Pride i capital campaign for the renova- 
tion of the MCB in the 1970's. It was never 
incorporated in the final plans. The next 
capital campaign, Pride II, was utilized to 
provide additional financial aid funds and 
enhance the salaries of faculty and staff. 
Pride II goals were successfully met in the 
early BO's and planning began for the next 
capital campaign.

The following is a poem submitted by a member of 

the sailing team: 

Things were mighty desperate for the Simmons team 

that day. 
As the chilling whitecaps tore across the Narragansett 

With Amy Wolpert injured 'twas a need in Division B 
For a skipper or two and all eyes turned to Allison and 

Now it must be said that we weren't prepared for the 

task that was at hand, 
Neither of us had ever sailed a 420 in command. 

But our team was counting on us and so we fearfully 

We zipped our suits and gnashed our teeth and swore 

we weren't afraid. 
The team came down to see us off and tell us we'd 

I pretended I could rig the boat and prayed I'd stay 

We sailed forth across the waves and tried to keep 

With sympathy and shouted help from the Brown's 

committee boat. 

Three long whistle blasts from Brad said all rules were 

in effect. 
And Al and I tacked back and forth, Simmons honor to 

We crossed the line on starboard tack and squinting 

toward the beach, 
I could picture Mark frustrated as we tacked from 

reach to reach. 
Things were going fine, 1 thought, our first buoy was 

But I'm here tonight to tell you — things aren't always 

what they seem. 

For suddenly, a puff came up, but alas it didn't stay, 
we hiked out far and with an awful crack I heard my 
knee give way. 

Oh, somewhere out across the bay the fleet was 

going in, 
Conn college now rejoicing in their half-expected win. 
B.U. was pleased with third and 1 could hear the Tufts 

girls shout — 
But there was no joy in my boat, for the skipper just 

fell out. 

— A true story by 

Sarah "Maddog" Maddeu 


This year's basketball team has seen its 
last days of practicing at The Winsor 
School and Emmanual College, not 
having a true home court and carrying 
equipment from MCB across 
Emmanual's campus. With the 
completion of the new Sports Center the 
basketball team will have a brand new 
locker room and court to call their own. 
No more late practice times, no more 
team pregame meetings in the hallway 
and finally a home court. 
With the graduation of only two seniors, 
Ning Nandhabiwat and Jackie Dasch, the 
basketball team is young and talented. 
The program has had a slow beginning. 
This year, with the addition of a full time 
coach, Ali Kantor, and several talented 
freshmen and sophomores, the program 
shows promise of developing in time. 
There is a strong nucleus of players 
returning next year. 

Although the win loss record was 5-15, 
the true success lies in the 
achievements not apparent from the 
record. The team won the games they 
should have, beat some teams that had 
beaten them last year by considerable 
margins and narrowed the gap between 
the stronger teams with history and 
themselves. Next year they will have 
young talent, some experience and 
maybe a "home court" advantage.

The Simmons News 

Holmes calls African 
Investments 'Insignificant' 

by Sharon Cotliar 

Simmons College has partially divested 
from South Africa, President of the 
college William Holmes told editors of 
The Simmons News. 

In an interview two weeks ago, Holmes 
explained that as recently as 1985, Sim- 
mons was invested in IS companies that 
were doing business in South Africa. 
Today •Simmons has investments in nine 
companies there. 

When asked whether the finance com- 
mittee, which is made up of eight people, 
has consciously tried to withdraw its 
holdings from companies which are in- 
vested in South Africa, Holmes said, 
"The committee is not saying we're get- 
ting out completely, but if there's a choice, 
between a company that is in or out, they 
will opt for the company that is not in 
South Africa." 

South Africa's system of apartheid, 
segregation of the races, has been an issue 
of concern among various governments as 
well as on college campuses throughout 
the country. 

In 1985, 80 percent of the Simmons 
faculty signed a letter urging the Simmons 
corporation to pull all Simmons funds out 
of companies that do business with the 
Pretoria government. 

While blacks make up 85 percent of the 
population, they have little say in the 
government and are prevented from enjoy- 
ing most of the same freedoms as whites. 

Five of the nine companies that Sim- 
mons is invested in are still active in 
South Africa, Holmes said. The four other 

companies have withdrawn or have an- 
nounced that they will be withdrawing. 

According to Holmes, the investments 
the college has in these nine companies 
represent less than four percent of the 
Simmons' endowment. While the college's 
endowment is currently reported as $56 
million, the investment the college has in 
the nine companies is reported to be more 
than $2 million. 

Though Holmes noted that this figure 
may be considered significant to the col- 
lege, he said it was "insignificant" to 
South Africa, explaining that it is "too 
small to have an effect." 

Holmes noted that at every meeting of 
the finance committee, of which he is a 
member, the topic of South Africa is dis- 
cussed. He said the committee has become 
much more "sensitive" to the situation 
there. "The pressure is being felt," he 
said, "but there is a diversity of opinion." 

All members of the finance committee 
agree that the system of apartheid is "un- 
acceptable," Holmes said. But, he added, 
"There is real concern whether total 
divestment would be pulling the blinds. on 
South Africa." 

Some good may be coming of Simmons' 
investment, Holmes said. He pointed out 
that one of the investments is in a medical' 
care company. 

Asked his influence on the committee, 
Holmes said that as President of the col- 
lege, the committee is interested in what 
he has to say, but he quickly added, "I'm

cont. from p. 1 

not the governing person on the commit- 
tee, and I don't want to be." 

"There is a real misconception on 
where other colleges are in terms of 
divestment," Holmes said. 

Relying on figures from January of 1987, 
Holmes said that out of 3200 colleges and 
universities only 156 have taken .some sort 
of action, 103 have partially divested, and 
53 have totally divested. 

"Simmons is on the list," Holmes said, 
referring to the feet that Simmons has par- 
tially divested. 

When asked if the students, faculty, and 
staff united on the issue of divestment, 
how much weight would the college give 
to their opinion, Holmes said the commit- 
tee would take their opinion into consider- 
ation, but ultimately, it is the committee's 

"They [the committee members] have 
been invested with the power by the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts," 
Holmes said. 

Holmes noted that the college has lost 
money because of its decision to stay out 
of some of the companies that are invested 
in South Africa. 

Holmes said he wants what's good for 
the college, adding that his main concern 
was that Simmons is "a sound, well- 
managed college." ■

92 Simmons's issues 

The Simmons News 

Faculty challenges 
Holmes on divestment 

by Heather Roe Forbes 

At a faculty meeting on Wednesday, 
November 2, two members of the faculty 
pressed President William Holmes to 
clarify bis statement on divestment from 
South Africa printed in the October 20th . 
issue of The Simmons News. 

The article quoted Holmes as saying the 
college could lose $250,000 a year if it 
divested its holdings in South Africa. The 
article further quoted Holmes as saying 
divestment could lead to an increase in 
tuition and a cut in faculty salaries. 
Holmes made these remarks during a stu- 
dent council meeting in September of 1985. 

David Gullette, professor of English, 
asked the president why cuts were men- 
tioned in faculty pay and not administra- 
tive salaries. 

Laurie Crumpacker, Coordinator of the 
Women's Studies Program, asked Holmes 
to clarify how much money Simmons 
could lose. 

The president said he was not prepared 
to comment on South Africa and if the 
faculty put it on next month's agenda he 
would come prepared to answer their 

This is not the first time this issue has 
been raised at a faculty meeting. Approxi- 
mately three years ago, members of the 
faculty began to raise questions about the 
college's ownership of stocks in firms that 
do business in South Africa. 

Since that time the faculty has voted 
twice to ask the Corporation to divest all 
holdings in South Africa and in companies 
that are in-South Africa. 

But they have met with little success. 

On Dec. 4, 1985, the faculty issued a re- 
sponse that criticized the Corporation's 
statement on college investments in South 
Africa. The response stated: "What is 
most unfortunate of all, however, is the 
moral stand that the Corporation has 
chosen to take because of their poor logic. 
In choosing to invest college funds in 
companies that do business in South 
Africa, the Corporation has chosen to 
actively participate in the only legalized, 
institutional practice of racism in the 
world today. The system of apartheid is 
morally repugnant and violates every prin- 
ciple of basic human dignity. In choosing 
to take advantage of this system, the Cor- 
poration is in essence saying that they are 
not bound by the principles which Sim- 
mons College seeks to advance. The size 
of our investment and the standard of our 
conduct in South Africa are irrelevant. To 
be involved there is to be involved in con- 
duct which none of us condones. Taking 
advantage of the cheap resources and arti- 
ficial markets created by apartheid is un- 
acceptable conduct for Simmons College." 

To this date the Corporation has not 
replied; and this lack of communication 
has angered the faculty. 

Crumpacker said, "None of the things 
[letter writing, voting; appealing to the 
Corporation] we have tried so far have 

worked. There has been no movement on 
the. part of the Corporation." 

Gullette said, "The faculty gets jaded 
trying to change this place." 

According to Gullette, the faculty over- 
whelmingly supports total divestment and 
is willing to participate with the student 
body to educate the community about 

Gullette said the president has voluntar- 
ily raised the heat on apartheid because of 
his statement that divestment could raise 
tuition and lower salaries of faculty. 

Gullette said, "The ball is in our court. 
We should call him on it. His statement is 
worthy of the election demagoguery. . .1 
cannot believe we would lose so much 

"The tuition thing is just a scare tactic 
unless it is true. He should present us 
with the facts— if the college is going to 
lose a quarter of a million dollars, prove it 
to me. President Holmes should print in 
The Simmons News all of his support data 
for his assertion that we will lose this 
amazing sum of money by divesting this 
piddling amount," Gullette said. He also 
noted how it seems the president wants it 
both ways, sometimes it's 'this amount is 
so small it doesn't even matter thai it's in 
South Africa,' other times 'the college will 
collapse if it divests the same amount.' 

"Simmons should divest," said Associ- 
ate Dean Elizabeth Rawlins. "Freedom. 
which we value so highly in this country, 
is worth suffering and death to them 
[black South Africans]. I think it [apart- 
heid] would end sooner if we got out." 
Rawlins said. 

Charlotte Morocco, dean of students. 
said, "Given who we are as an institution 
it would be nice to be on the high road. It 
seems consistent with who we are and 
how we treat each other." 

Morocco said the institution is making a 
decision in the name of all Simmons 
students; past, present, and future. "We 
should take a stand and be so committed 
to it that even if that stand would cripple 
the institution we would take that sand. It 
should be that important. The commitment 
should be so strong that even if we had to 
close our doors in September we would," 
she said. 

Morocco is not sure of her own commit- 
ment to divestment. "It is perfectly dear 
to me that apartheid is immoral and un- 
ethical. I am less clear about financial 
entanglements in South Africa. I have a 
problem asking Simmons to divest from 
South Africa when Tm not convinced I 
can do that as a person. Our retirement 
fund, TIAA/CREF, is in there; I'm not 
pulling out. I could choose to do these 
things [boycott South African involved 
companies] if I took the time to find out 
who is doing business in South Africa. We 
decide which computers are best for the

continual from p. 1 
college— do we ask if they are doing busi- 
oess with South Africa? I fed morally 
right but sufficiently confused. Working 

00 (he inside as opposed to the outside 

1 guess." 

Rawlins said. "It's easier to wort oo the 
inside when there is a mechanism open to 
change. People here just have to find ways 
10 nuke the Constitution stick. There is 
hope. There is not that vehicle in South 
Africa. There b a conception that one 
group is superior to another. . .If I lived in 
South Africa I would have to give up my 
husband because he's darker than 1. That's 

Crumpacker also points out that the 
blacks win take the losses for the bigger 
gains. "Divestment," she said, "is the 
only thing their gov ernm ent will under- 

Holmes said the issue of divestment is a 
miner of continued concern and the 
finance oonunsttee discusses it at each 
meeting, if only briefly. 

He said the finance committee sees the 
decision as both a financial and mora! 
decision. He said they are not oblivious to 
the moral implications. 

In defense of the S2.2 million invest- 
ment the Corporation now has in South 
Africa, Holmes said. "Does it help 
matters by moving out? Some say yes; 
others say no. If we didn't have companies 
in there we'd have no idea what is going 
on. The question for me is, do you do bet- 
ter by withdrawing from something you 
don't like or should you work to make 
it better?" 

Holmes paralleled the situation to 
Ethiopia. He said the more governments 
got involved in the Ethiopia famine the 
more obvious it was their own government 
was starving them to death. Holmes asks, 
"Do we tun our backs oo starving Ethio- 
pians because their government is killing 

And if we discover the South African 
government b repressing (heir blacks- 
Should we withdraw? 

Holmes said, "I don't really think 
divestment is the answer: if 1 did I would 
have a whole different approach. I see 
divestment as a walking away." 

Gullette sees the situation differently. He 
said. "The real issue is our responsibility 
as a college and (hat is to set the highest 
moral example we can." The finance com- 
mittee is using Sullivan's principles, which 
are a set of principles written by the 
Reverend Leon H. Sullivan with respect to 
how black workers should be treated. Sim- 

mons has chosen not to invest in any com- 
pany that will not comply with these prin- 
ciples. "But they are not for colleges," 
Gullette says, "especially not colleges. 
Colleges should have nothing to do with 
South Africa. The black leaders have 
asked colleges to put pressure on the 
government by divesting. Colleges should 
set the moral tone for the country." 

Gullette said President Holmes recently 
sent around a memo urging (he faculty to 
reach out to (be world and give to Oxfam 
and the United Vvay. "Yet, be won't listen 
to our concerns about South Africa." 

Other schools may not be listening 

According to a 1987 list provided by 
Holmes, a reported 1S6 have divested. 
Holmes points out that only 55 schools 
have divested fully and (be remaining 
schools have partially divested. He em- 
phasizes Simmons b one of (nose schools 
that has taken action. Simmons has par- 
tially divested. 

The faculty argues that that b not 

Crumpacker, a Simmons graduate, feels 
the pressure has to come from the stu- 
dents. "They (the students] have to embar- 
rass the Corporation. I think the students 
here are too polite for their own good. . . 
maybe it b time to stop being so polite." 

"You're the consumers here," she said. 

Morocco feels the Corporation would 
invite the student opinion— if the student 
body informed itself. 

Rawlins agreed, "You have to have your 
facts together. The corporation b made up 
of busy people who volunteer their time. 
You would need to know your facts and 
exactly where the student body stands. 
Then give an informed, serious and re- 
spectful opinion." 

Gullette said getting the Corporation to 
divest "depends on the way the student 
body and faculty express their feelings." 

"Students need to understand our con- 
nection to South Africa. Let's think about 
the flowers in our driveway. The money 
for those flowers must come from some- 
where. Endowments maybe. Our endow- 
ments are in South African companies. 
The reason these companies are able to 
pay such a high return is the way they 
treat their black workers. Students need to 
sec the chain, the money chain leading 
from our flowers to the black workers." 

For black South Africans the money that 
pours in from countries like the United 
States symbolizes a chain that keeps them 
from their freedom. ■

Woods Urges Simmons to Divest 

by Christine McGarity 

The outcome of Donald Woods' ap- 
pearance last Wednesday night was more 
than just the heightened awareness of apar- 
theid that was hoped for. More than half 
way through the question and answer 
period of the evening, while discussing 
what can be done to stop apartheid. 
Woods mentioned the divestment of col- 
lege holdings, ". . , there are still campuses 
that haven't divested, although most have," 
he said, and was interrupted by a call 
from the audience. " We haven't," pro- 
claimed senior Deana Gamber. 

A stunned Woods took a moment before 
responding, but then said, "Well, I hope 
something's done about that pretty soon." 

Many in attendance stirred after the 
news was out, and many more expressed 
their surprise and anger at both Woods' 
not being informed, and at the college's 
investments in the companies in South 

"I really hope that he didn't find out at 
that moment," said Candyce Polk, Head 
Resident of Morse Hall. "1 hope it doesn't 
make him have a sour feeling about Sim- 
mons . . . I'm sure he came thinking that 
the Simmons campus believed in human 
rights for all people." 

According to Terr: Delahtinty, Student 
Activities Director, Woods in fact was 

It's official; Holmes says 
tuition to increase 9.9% 

unaware of Simmons' investments in South 

"I wonder if the college was thinking 
that maybe it wouldn't come out [at the 
lecture]," said Polk. 

Until that moment, many attendees were 
unaware that the Simmons corporation has 
investments in companies which have 
holdings in South Africa. "I didn't know," 
said freshman Caitlin Carroll, "I was sur- 
prised that with all the people that did 
know that more of an issue hasn't been 
made. It makes you almost ashamed of 
Simmons. . .1 hope there is something that 
we can do." 

This is not the first time that a student 
has expressed hope of changing the divest- 
ment situation. Demands from students, 
faculty, and staff to divest have been made 
on several occasions since a meeting of 
the Student Council in September of 1985. 

According to a statement made by Presi- 
dent William Holmes at the September 
meeting, a study done by the Finance 
Committee showed that $5 million of Sim- 
mons' $43 million endowment was held in 
stocks of IS companies that do business in 
South Africa. At that time, the reported 
total investment in these stocks was less 
-than $60,000. 

At the same meeting, Holmes said that 
if Simmons divested these stocks, reinvest- 
ment would be a difficult task. He ex- 

plained that Simmons could stand to lose 
$250,000 a year as a result. (This figure 
was based comparatively on a study which 
showed the predicted losses of Mt. 
Holyoke College if they divested.) Holmes 
added that a loss of this amount would 
augment tuition and possibly decrease pro- 
fessors' salaries. 

• On December 4, 1985, a statement was 
voted on affirmatively by the faculty, 
outlining arguments against the Finance 
Committee's contentions, and it urged the 
corporation to divest fully from those 
companies doing business in South Africa. 
This statement was reaffirmed as recently 
as February of this year, but still no action 
has been taken by the corporation to do 

During the spring of 1986 several stu- 
dents, both members of the S.G.A. and 
non-members, made efforts to raise aware- 
ness of the situation in South Africa. The 
"knowledge of apartheid" was hoped to 
unify the campus and promote efforts to 
pressure for divestment. 

A South African Awareness day was 
sponsored by the S.G.A. , and informative 
pamphlets were given out by individual 
students who chose to try and make a 

Eventually, these efforts were made un- 
successfully, because, as we all now know. 
Simmons has not yet divested. ■

Students & parents angered over tuition increase 

by DeeDee Plate 

It has been nearly three weeks since 
President Holmes officially announced the 
9.9% tuition increase, and if Holmes was 
hoping the angry reactions to the an- 
nouncement would die down before the 
letters informing parents were sent, he was 

Students are still fuming over the un- 
characteristically high increase and those 
few students brave enough to tell their 
parents in advance will tell you that mom 
and dad aren't exactly euphoric either. 

"It's outrageous," says Mary Henrich, 
mother of Theresa Henrich, a freshman at 

Simmons. "You can't say anything about 
it, you just have to scream," she 

When the increase was first announced, 
Tricia though she was going to have to 
transfer, but her parents, realizing that 
Tricia was happy and doing well 
academically at Simmons, let her stay. 

"It puts such a burden on me because 
it's so much money," explains Tricia. 

Tricia is not only referring to the agree- 
ment she has with her parents stating that 
as long as she keeps her grades up she can 
stay at Simmons, but also to the thirty 
hours a week she worked last semester to 
earn extra money. Tricia is still looking 
for a job this semester. 

"There's no need for higher education to 
cost so much," said Tricia. 

Marie Petrucci, mother of Dawn Petruc- 
ci, a sophomore P.T. major at Simmons, 
doesn't like the increase either and is fear- 
ful of the future of higher education. 

"They're going to price everybody right 
out of going to school," says Petrucci. 

Mr. and Mrs. Plakias agree that tuition 
is creating a burden, but like to think that 
their daughter, Kim Plakias, a sophomore, 
is receiving a top-notch education and 
that, in the end, it will have been worth it. 

Michelle St. Pierre, a freshman, hasn't 
gotten up the nerve to tell her parents yet. 
"I don't want to be around when they find 

out," said St. Pierre. According to St. 
Pierre, most of her friends feel the same 

Julie Kim, a junior, can't believe the in- 
crease. "Thank God I only have one more

sentiments are the same. 

The overall attitude of students and 
parents alike was best summed up by 
Karen Pope, mother of Christian Pope, a 
sophomore at Simmons. 

"Put up or shut up. They make the 
rules," says Pope. "There's nothing you

The Simmons News 


On Saturday, February 18th, Eddy left 
the Long Island Shelter in Quincy before 
7:00 a.m., as he does every day. On his 
walk to the "T," he begged for enough 
change to get him downtown — to Boston 
Common, where he knew his usual group 
of friends would be. 

After begging money from civilians on 
the street. Eddy and his friends on the 
Common discovered they did not have 
enough money to buy themselves a bottle 
of vodka. But, there was enough change to 
buy a large bottle of Listerine mouthwash, 
which they could buy at CVS on Park 
Street. Listerine has a low-alcohol content, 
"which ain't no vodka, but it numbs the 
pain of living, if you can call this living," 
said Eddy. 

After finishing their first bottle of 
Listerine, the sun came out, and they 
began to feel a little warmer. They 
wouldn't feel quite as cold when they 
needed to gather change for the next bot- 
tle, and a pack of cigarettes. 

However, after consuming three bottles 
of Listerine, CVS refused to sell them 
another. The group of homeless men were 
happy when another friend arrived with a 
bottle of vodka, which he shared with all 
of them. Whatever they have, they will 
share with one another. "Us street people 
help each other; all we've got is each 
other," said one member of the group. 

At noon, when a nearby soup kitchen 
opened, the more sober of the group 
assisted Eddy (who by this time was un- 
able to get up by himself) into the kitchen. 
When they arrived Eddy slumped in the 
corner, and soup kitchen volunteers helped 
him to eat something . "I don't know what 
we're going to do with Eddy. "He's spent 
[had it]; he can't do it anymore. It's almost i 
time for him to leave us now, I think," said 
Dougie, his close friend. 

An hour later, back on the Common, 
Eddy attempted to beg some more money. 
But as he was swaying and staggering, no 
one would go near him. Finding the 
weather too cold to bear, he sat inside the 
"T" station. Some of the group joined 
him. while others retreated to their various 

said one of the homeless men who sleeps 
on the streets every night. 

Dougie used to sleep on the streets to 
avoid the "hassles" at shelters. (On the 
whole, the shelters are dangerous, par- 
ticularly Pine Street Inn. according to 
Dougie who was stabbed with an ice pick 
in a shelter.) But when Dougie had half 
his foot amputated from frost bite recently, 
he now feels shelters are his only option. 

Dougie had little success begging money 
that Saturday afternoon. "Do you know 
what that [guy] just said to me?" he 
asked, when he returned to the group. 
"Well, I'll tell you— He told me I'm a lazy 
bum and I should get a job. Can't he see 
how sick I am? How...damn obvious does 
it have to be? Does he really think I enjoy 
living like this?" 

Apart from his foot and stab wound, 
Dougie suffers from a shot wound he 
received in the Vietnam War. Beyond of all 
this, Dougie has had to face the fact that he 
has AIDS. A man approached him say- 
ing, "Hey Eddy, you're looking really 
bad. Have some of this, it'll make you feel 
better." Staggering himself, the man 
handed Eddy half a pint of methanol. Ed- 
dy eagerly finished the bottle in five 

Feeling the effects of the methanol im- 
mediately, he was unable to move himself 
from the floor of the "T" station. Busy 
passengers passing by looked down at 
Eddy with absolute disgust. 
Soon after, his condition worsened. Before 
his friends were able to move him, Eddy 
began to have a seizure. Heidi Grassley, a 
Simmons student who had spent the day 

with Eddy and his friends, called an 
ambulence to the scene. 

The ambulance arrived within 10 
minutes. By the time the ambulence 
workers were able to get to Eddy's seizure 
had stopped, but he was fading. He was 
taken into the ambulance, and the 
emergency network services did everything 
they could for Eddy, but to no avail. Eddy 
died on the way to the hospital. 

Like Dougie and a large number of 
homeless men in Boston, Eddy was a 
Vietnam veteran. Eddy fought in the Viet- 
nam war for 18 months. "I was in Viet- 
nam and I'm proud of it. I still love this 
country even though I know it doesn't give 
a damn about me. People spat on me 
when I came back from Vietnam," said 
Eddy, earlier that day. 

Not only was he "spat on" when he 
returned from Vietnam, but he never re- 
ceived any psychological help. According 

to Eddy, the remaining rehabilitation cen- 
ters for Vietnam veterans had been closed 
down by the Nixon administration by the 
time he returned to America. Like many 
other Vietnam veterans, Eddy began his 
addiction to drugs and alcohol during the 
war to cope with traumatic circumstances. 
He lived on the streets ever since his re- 
turn from Vietnam. Without help, Eddy 
said he could not fit back into his former 

Before Eddy left for Vietnam, he was 
living in the Boston area with a wife and 
six children. 

"Vietnam was 15 years ago, but the 
casualty list is still growing. The pain is 
still there, and the consequences are still 
being felt," said Grassley Simmons

Simmons is represented at Pro-choice march 

by Andrea Cirie 

Approximately 75 Simmons students were 
among the estimated 450,000 Pro-choice 
demonstrators, gathered last Sunday for a 
march and rally at the nation's capital to 
support a woman's right to a "safe and legal" 

"This is an event that will go down in 
history. ..I felt like I made a difference," said 
junior Kathy Carmichael. 

The students who traveled to the march 
joined people from all over the United 
States. Those students who did not travel 
to Washington, D.C. on the bus chartered by 
Simmons got there by train, plane, car or by 
a NOW (National Organization of Women) 
chartered bus. 

Many of the demonstrators came out of a 
sense of urgency as the 1973 Supreme Court 
decision oiRoe v. Wade legalizing 
abortion, will face its most crucial 
challenge in Washington on April 26. The 
controversial decision is now being 
threatened by a 1986 abortion case from 
Missouri that has made its way to the 
Supreme Court and may threaten to limit, or 
result in the decision being overturned. 

"That's why I'm here," said 54-year-old 
Joan Becker from Long Island, New York. 
"I refuse to turn back the clock." 

96 Simmons's Issues 

Decker's sentiments were echoed by 
many. Supporters of the Pro-choice 
movement seem to agree that the mere re- 
cvalution of the Roc v. Wade case is a step 
backward for women's rights. 

House Representative Don Edwards (D- 
Califomia) shouted from the steps of the 
capilol, "Mr. President, you and your gang 
want to lake yourselves back to the dark 
ages-well, we're not going with you." 

The crowd of men, women and children of 
every age and colo/ responded to Edwards's 
remarks by chanli ig, "Never again." 

The rally featured a number of charismatic 
speakers including Reverend Jesse Jackson, 
Gloria Stcincm, NOW President Molly 
Yard, actress Cybill Shcpard, and House 
Representative Patricia Schrocdcr (D- 

Schrocdcr, who will be the keynote 

speaker at Simmons' commencement 
ceremony this May, announced to the crowd 
that, "(When) Ronald Reagan got elected and 
said, 'Put down your picket signs and put on 
vbur little dress for success suits,' a lot of 
people put down their picket signs and lost 
their rights." 

Fayc Watticton. the president of Planned 
Parenthood, asked the crowd, "If we cannot 
be trusted to decide what is right for our 
bodies, what good arc we doing in the 
corporate boardrooms?" 

The protesters rcsjx)ndcd by jolting their 
placards into the air and chanting the 
messages they carried. The messages varied 
in tone. Some placards read simply, "Pro- 
choice is pro-life," and "Roe v. Wade is here 
to slay." 

Others took a more severe approach reading, 
"Keep Bush off my body," and "If men coulc 
get pregnant, abortion would be a 

The diversity of the demonstrators 
suggested that even though women are the 
only group physically affected by abortion 
rights, the social ramifications of a Roe v. 
Wade overturn would affect the entire nation 
"I'm here to support women's rights, but 
I'm also here to support my own rights. 
This is not just a women's issue, it's a 
human issue. If (the Supreme Court) takes 
away a woman's riglu to choose an abortion 
who knows what will be next, " said 22- 
ycar-old Indiana University student John 

Tcrri Grant Williams, a Simmons senior, 
said, "The incredible thing about the march 
was the diversity of people there. There were 
huge numbers of men there and families 
with three or four generations represented, 
which proves that this is no longer a 
women's issue. It is a personal rights and 
privacy issue." 

Junior Allison Simmons said, "I wish we 
could bring the feeling back home to the 
people who weren't there. For me, it was 
very empowering.. .to be in a crowd that big 
with people who share the same feelings tha 
you do is amazing," she said.B

Conference discusses Palestinian/Israeli conflict 

by Sharon Cot liar 

In a symposium that would have been 
politically impossible just ten years ago, 
individuals representing Israeli, Palestinian 
and American viewpoints gathered at 
Simmons College on Tuesday, April 1 1 to 
discuss possible resolutions to the 
Israeli-Palestinian conflict 

The symposium, which was organized by 
Kirk Beattie, chairman of the Political 
Science department and an assistant 
professor at Simmons, featured Hermann 
Eilts, Ibrahim Abu-Lughod, Avner Yaniv 
and William Quandt 

Beattie opened the conference by noting 
that it had been 10 years and 16 days since 
the signing of the Camp David Peace 
Treaty between Egypt and Israel and 
pointing out that the Israeli-Palestinian 
conflict is at a "critical juncture" as a result 
the Intifadah or Palestinian uprising [that is 
now 16 months old] .which led to the 
Palestinians' recent recognition of Israel's 
right to exist and the opening of dialogues 
between the United States and the 
Palestinians via Yassir Arafat, the leader of 
the Palestinian Liberation Organization. 

Eilts, who was the United States 
ambassador to Egypt at the time of the 
signing of the Camp David Peace Accords 
and therefore was part of the negotiating 
team, discussed what he felt were the 
"lessons" of Camp David. 

"When we finished Camp David, we were 
all in a state of euphoria," said Eilts, 
noting the importance of the fact that an 
American president, Jimmy Carter, had 
managed to mediate an agreement between 
Israel and Egypt 

Yet Eilts said that the Camp David 
Peace Treaty, an agreement that was 
supposed to lead to a comprehensive peace 
in the Middle East ultimately failed 
because they did not place enough 
importance on the resolution of the 
Palestinian problem. 

"It was our hope that the momentum 
would continue.. .but the agreement 
between Egypt and Israel did not develop as 
we hoped it would and there is now more 
hostility in the area than existed before."

Yvette Lee-son. 

"We wanted an American president to 
succeed and in the process we allowed a 
document to develop that had no meaning," 
said Eilts. 

In retrospect Eilts said, that it is clear 
that they (those that negotiated the 
settlement) did not place enough 
importance on the Palestinian issue. "It has 
become increasingly clear that if we are 
really going to move toward a 
comprehensive peace [in the Middle East] 
that the Palestinian problem needs to be 
looked at 

Eilts said that while he believes the 
United States does not have the same 
credibility in the region that it did 10 years 
ago, he still believes that the U.S. is the 
only power that could act as an 
intermediary in the conflict He also said 
that he thinks that the solution of the 
Israeli/Palestinian conflict could only 
happen as the result of an international 

Simiiiarly, Abu-Lughod, who was the 
second speaker, expressed his belief that the 
conflict could only be resolved through 
negotiations involving an intermediary. 
Abu-Lughod, who is a member of the • 
Palestinian National Council (PNC) and a 
professor of Political Science at 
Northwestern University, discussed the 
benefits of the Intifadah. 

Ibrahim Abu-Lughod addresses crowd at Simmons. Photo by Y\?tte Lee-son. 

He said that the uprising enabled King 
Hussein of Jordan to disengage himself 
from the West Bank, which was formerly 
part of of Jordan before Israel conquered the 
territory during the Six Day War in 1967, 
allowing the Palestinian population there 
the chance to break ties with the Jordanian 
government that supervised the area along 
with the Israeli military and declare their 

Abu-Lughod said that he feels fortunate 
to witness Palestinians "practicing 
independence on tiieir own soil,"and he 
added that'Israel's non-recognition [of the 
Palestinian declaration of an independent 
Palestinian state in the occupied territories] 
is painful but in the long-run it is 

Abu-Lughod said he considers the United 
States a party to the conflict, and he said 
he was happy to hear the Bush 
Administration using a "different 

"I'm not saying acceptance of the 
Palestinian reality is around the comer but 
it is there," said Abu-Lughod. 

Abu-Lughod also stressed the importance 
of stopping the shipment of arms to the 

Yaniv, who spoke after Abu-Lughod, did 
not agree with Abu-Lughod's suggestion 
that disarmament should be advocated in the 
region. Instead, he said, it is important for 
Arab countries to "start accepting the power 
realities as they are, and that eventually 
these realities will be changed. 

Yaniv suggested that the best way for the 
Palestinians to get the Israelis to 
negotiations was to have the P.L.O. call 
for a halt to the stone-throwing 
demonstrations that are now a daily part of 
life in the occupied territories of the West 
Bank and the Gaza Strip. Yaniv said this 
would prove that the P.L.O. really is the 
sole representative of the Palestinian 
people. There is some suspicion of 
duplicity," he noted.. 

Quandt, a National Security Council 
advisor to the Middle East during the Carter 

administration and now a member of the 
Brookings Institution, followed Yaniv's 
comments with a discussion of the role the 
United States could play in the Middle 

As a former diplomat who is familiar 
with Washington's inner circles, Quandt 
said that it is an "interesting 
time," noting that the Bush administration 
is now- considering what kind of role it 
should play. 

Quandt said that he felt the Bush 
administration would take an interest in the 
conflict and worked towards its resolve. 
Like Eilts, he felt the U.S. is the only 
power tliat could serve. as an intermediary.

1,000 attend on-campus party 

by Sharon Cotliar 

In what was an unprecedented turnout for a 
Simmons social event, more than 1,000 
people came to the residence campus last 
Friday night to attend what was advertised as 
"The Perfect Party," sponsored by Arnold 

The party, which was held in Alumnae 
Hall, went from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. By 10. 
p.m., the hall was filled to maximum 
capacity (400 peopfe), and a line had formed 
outside the doors that reached out onto 
Brooidine Ave. 

"It was an amazing turnout," said Kristen 
Bell, a senior at Simmons. 

Noting that the campus has seen little 
action in recent years, junior Jennifer Lahuc 
said, "It was really nice to see so many 
people here." 

"I couldn't believe it when I saw the line 
was all the way out to the street," said Lisa 
Pacheco, a Simmons sophomore who 
waited outside for a half an hour before she 

was let into the party. 

Also in line with Pacheco were 
students from Boston University, Boston 
College, MIT, Tufts, Harvard University's 
undergraduate and graduate programs, St. 
John's University, Maritime Academy, the 
Coast Guard Academy as well as a mimbcr 
of other colleges and universities in the New 
England area. 

The "amazing turnout" can largely be 
attributed to the organizing efforts of Sue 
Harper, a sophomore-resident of Arnold Hall 
who said she was tired of hearing Simmons 
students complain about their non-existent 
social life and decided, "It was time to put 
Simmons back on the map." 

Harper proposed the idea of having Arnold 
Hall sponsor a parly at a dorm meeting in 
early February. 

"The organization of the party was a team 
effort," said Harper. 

"We achieved our goal, and now 
hopefully we've set a precedent for other 
'halls," said Harpcr.B 

1989 Mr. Simmons Scott Howlett chosen on talent 



by Andrea Cirie 

Plump pastel balloons and twisted 
colored streamers hung from the walls of 
Alumnae Hall. The string of bright lights 
surrounding the runway set the stage for 
the contestants. The audience waited in 
anticipation. Would he be brawny or 
would he be small? Would he be short or 
would he be tall? 

These questions lingered in the minds of 
audjence members at the 13th Annual Mr. 
Simmons Contest last Sunday night. 
After a two-hour presentation of the six 
contestants, a Theta Chi fraternity brother 
from MIT was crowned the 1989 winner. 

The contest, organized by a South Hall 
committee, was more than just a beauty 
pageant The contestants were judged on 
their knowledge of Simmons trivia, 
creativity, talent, and modeling abilities. 

"The best thing about the contest was 
seeing the reactions on the guys' faces," 
said junior Elaine Petrasy. Petrasy was 
referring to the "Impromptu Creativity" 
portion of the contest. Contestants were 
asked by the Mistresses of Ceremonies, 
Patty Merola and Colleen Berry, to act out 
a given situation without words or sounds. 
Some of the situations ranged from 
walking in extremely high heels, "the kind 
you only see in Revere", said Merola,

The contestants, who represented the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
Wentworth Institute of Technology, 
Boston University, and Northeastern 
University were asked to share their 
"hidden talents" with the audience. The 
acts included juggling, stand-up comedy, 
and a campfire rendition of a song by 
country singer Waylon Jennings. 

The highlight of the contest, however, 
was the talent act of winner Scott 
Howlett Howlett, who dressed up as a 
stereotypical "geek" emitted his act "A 
Smorgasbord." His self-created character 
performed a dance (taught to him by his 
calculus teacher) that turned into a strip 
tease. Beneath the unmatched, outdated 
clothing and thick, taped glasses Howlett 
was wearing a pair of boxer shorts that 
read "Bom to do Physics," with "F=MA" 
written across his derricre. 

The uncontainable cheering and laughter 
sent a high-spirited mood through the hall. 
But, as Merola and Berry later pointed out, 
"It is important to remember why wc arc 
here." They explained thai the proceeds of 
the contest were going to be donated to the 
Massachusetts chapter of the Starlight 
Foundation, an organization that grants 
wishes to critically, chronically, and 
terminally ill children. 

Penny Goodman, administrator of the 
local chapter of the Slarlighi Foundation, 
told the audience that the money the 
foundation gels, through individual and 
corporate donations and charily events, 
goes toward granting such wishes as trips 
lo Disney World and celebrity visits. 
Goodman told the audience that "It's 
people like you who make dreams come 
true for our children." 

Other audience members shared 
Goodman's sentiments. Sophomore 
Melissa Murrcll said, "It was nice to know 
that the event was going to benefit a good 

Junior Tammy Roy explained thai she 
enjoyed the irony of the event itself. "[The 
Mr. Simmons contest] is certainly a 
reversal of what you usually sec-- this time 
we're in control," she said. ■ 

98 Simmons's Issues 

The Simmons News 

Sports Center to open soon, athletic director says 

by Kim Pressman 

With only Ave weeks left in the semester, 
a supervisor of the Sport Center's construc- 
tion said the project is close to completion. 
Yet, a grand opening date still has not been 
set "We're trying to get it open in April," 
said Sheila Brown, director of athletics and 
physical education. "We hope to get in and 
hope to get in, but right now it's not that 

Several of the Sports Center's attractions 
require additional work, according to 
Brown. But, as of March 30th, the pool was 
Tilled, and it is believed that the entire pool 
area will pass inspection by April 10. 
" Vappi (the construction company in charge 
of the project) should give us the building 
by April 14, substantially complete. Then 
we still have to work on the punch list," 
explained Brown. 

The "punch list" consists of items that 
still have to be completed. According to 
Brown, they are not major issues, but the 
Sports Center has to be complete before it 
can be open for use. The next couple of 
weeks will prove to be crucial in determin- 
ing the final opening date. 
"We're ready to go with staffing," Brown 
said and added, "we already had a job 
meeting in the Conference Room. Hope- 
fully we will be lucky with the punch list 
We're going to nave to make a lot ot 
decisions. For instance, if there is a shower 
in the locker room that doesn't work, do 
you close off the shower or not let anyone 
into the building yet?" 

However, many decisions concerning the 
building's use have been decided already. 
First of all, ' the graduating class of 1989 will 

be given a free membership for the next 
year. There will be no fees for current 
Simmons students or graduate students. The 
faculty, staff, and alumnae win be able to 
purchase memberships for an annual fee of 
S100. Family memberships vill also be 
available, but the cost has not been deter- 
mined as of this time. Students and graduate 
students will be allowed two guests at a 
time, free of charge. Faculty, staff and 
alumnae will be allowed one guest per visit, 
also free of charge, according to Brown. 

Even though the center is not open, tenta- 
tive hours have been discussed and will be 
used on-a trial basis. The Sports Center will 
be open between 8 a.m. • 10 pjn. weekdays 
and 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 
12:00 p.m. • 8:00 p.m. on Sundays. The 
pool, however, will have more restricted 
hours. Brown said. 

The new sports complex will be open only 
to the Simmons College community through 
the end of the fall semester. The staff will 
have to decide how much the complex is 
used by the Simmons community before' 
they can open it up to other institutions. 
'Typically speaking," Brown explained, 
"classes and teams will have priority. Right 
now we just want to get you all in there." 

Since the beginning of the spring semester 
the athletics staff has been enthusiastic and 
open about the progress of the complex 
"We've given tours to donors, lathers and 
daughters [during Father/Daughter Week- 
end], classes, different offices, etc. and we 
have received overwhelmingly positive 
feedback," Brown said. The department 
cannot wait to turn it over to the student 
body and "are as anxious as anyone to get 
in," according to Brown.

Directors have been discussing an opening 
date scheduled somehow into Spring Spree 
or May Day, although no promises can be 
made. At this time, the time capsule, whicn 
is presently being put together, will be 
inserted in the wall behind the cornerstone. 
They are waiting now ( just like all the 
students) for a confirmed date of absolute 
completion. Yet, the staff says that Senior 
Week is a possible target and "we hope the 
seniors will plan some events in the gym 

j-u. ng that week," said Brown. 

Presently, there is an information sheet 
about hours and other cpncems.that can be 
pick *1 up in the Physical Education Depart- 
ment The staff is more than willing to 
provide any answers they can at this time. 
Brown acknowledged that it has been a long 
awaited project But she said the end is no 
longer a far-off possibility, it's in sight said

April 5, 1989 

To The Class of 1989: 

It is always difficult to write this letter because it means 
that we are losing a quarter of our best citizens, those who have 
worked the hardest and the longest to keep Simmons interesting and 
busy. One thinks of the Sports Center, of work on the residence 
campus, of South African Awareness Day, and of the Arnold Hall 

But move on as you must; you have to try out all the things you 
have learned here and all the things you have become here. Chosing 
Simmons has made you a different person and living and working in 
Boston has added to your class room and laboratory experiences, we 
hope, to make you a more capable and interesting person. 

Do not settle for too little. The world is huge and complex 
and can be confusing and unstructured. But the same energy and 
intelligence that brought you to Simmons and carried you through 
Simmons can be depended upon to work again. People are people, 
even if there are more of them, and goals are goals. Set your 
sights on something that you can respect and feel worthwhile and go 

We are still here to help you and are happy to be asked. 
Remember us as a part of your large family just as you remember 
each other as a source of strength and support.

Dear Members of the Class of 1989, 

It was with pleasure that I accepted an invitation to provide 
this letter of best wishes to the members of the Class of 1989. 
As always, I am finding it a little difficult to believe that, for 
most of you, four years have passed since your arrival at the 
College. Some of my colleagues would insist that this is a sign 
of my advancing age, but I know better. It really is a sign of 
how much I have enjoyed being a small part of your experience at 
the College. 

Commencement Day will be a day filled with many conflicting 
emotions for you, including that moment in the day that will mark 
the end of one phase of your life and the beginning of another. 
For those of us who teach and work at Simmons, it is a day of 
pride. Each of you reflects our best efforts to inspire in you 
"the self-confidence and spirit of independence that will permit 
you to lead rich personal lives and to give you the competence to 
become useful members of society." We believe in what we do; we 
work hard at it; and you are the proof that together we have done 
it well. 

For us, this is also a day of hope and optimism. You are our 
future. We believe you have the talent, skill, patience, 
compassion, sensitivity, creativity, ingenuity, daring and 
integrity that it will take to make sense out of our universe, to 
provide order in our society, and to bring forth our humanity. 

So, we celebrate together. You have every reason to be proud of 
what you have done, who you are, and what you will become. We 
hope, sincerely, that you will keep in touch with us so that we 
can evaluate the Simmons experience through you and share in your 
future successes. My best wishes for a lifetime of serendipitous 
experiences and my thanks to you for enriching the life of the 
Simmons College Community.

and practice provides the opportunity for 
challenge and creativity in a career in

I will always have fond memories of working for Mr. Barrow. As a

like him as a father figure. 1 remember introducing Mr. Barrow to 
my parents and how he always asked about them. As a boss, Mr. 
Barrow could be demanding, but was always understanding and 
compassionate. He was concerned about each of us as people 
not just as employees. 1 will miss him a lot. I will miss his laugh and 
all his stories.

Biology Liaison 

The Biology Liaison acts as a link 
between the students and faculty 
of the biology department. Ac- 
tivities are organized to enhance 
this student-faculty relationship. 
The activities include a student- 
faculty dinner, camping trip, bake 
sales and a trip to the Museum of 
Science. The members of the biol- 
ogy liaison also participate in stu- 
dent evaluations and have input 
into curriculum decisions and the 
selection of new faculty mem-

Hillel is the Jewish Student Or- 
ganization on campus. We run so- 
cial, religious and cultural pro- 
grams — a little something for 
everyone. This year we had a fab- 
ulous dance which was held in 
the Fens Cafeteria. The dance 
was co-sponsored by some of the 
other Hillels at colleges around 
greater Boston, and it turned out 
to be quite a success (and a lot of 
fun!) Thanks to the support of the 
Simmons community, this year 
Hillel was able to arrange to have 
a beautiful oil menorah in the 
Quad during the week of Chan- 
ukah. We also ran programs in 
conjunction with "Generations", 
an organization that links college 
students with the elderly. Some of 
our other great events include a 
movie night, a speaker on the 
Jews of Ethiopia, and special pro- 
grams on the Jewish holidays. 
Hillel is an excellent way to have 
fun, meet new friends and learn 
more about ourselves and others. 

The Commuter 

Commuters compose approxi- 
mately one-third of the undergradu- 
ate population of Simmons College. 
This significant proportion of the stu- 
dent body is supported by the Com- 
muter Organization which exists to 
serve'their needs and make life at 
Simmons more enjoyable. The orga- 
nization sponsors brunches, teas, 
holiday parties and many other social 
events as well as numerous fundrais- 
ers. These have included bake sales, 
vendors, flower sales, raffles and 
candygrams. A highlight of the spring 
semester is the annual Commuter 
Awareness Day. 

The 1988-1989 officers are: 
PRESIDENT: Zehra Schneider '89 
VICE-PRESIDENT: Alys Nawawi '90 
TREASURER: Debra MacNeil '90 
SECRETARY: Megan Gondek '91 
SENIOR REP.: Kathy Parker '89 
JUNIOR REP.: Amani Thomas '90 

Karasoulos '91 
FRESHMAN REP.: Sandra Costantini 


Raso '91 & Tammy Syrigos '91 
Also important to the smooth func- 
tioning of the organization were all the 
students who were involved but did 
not hold any specific office. 

Commuter events are open to all 
members of the Simmons com-

the next few years promise to be 
even better. This year the class 
attempted to increase the spirit at 
Simmons by holding a reception 
after the opening basketball game 
and co-sponsoring an event at the 
new Sports Center. We carolled at 
the Children's Hospital and held 
two very successful bake sales. 
Ending the year with a scavenger 
hunt and barbecue, brought a 
close to our first year at Simmons.

Junior Class 

This year the members of the 
Junior Class participated in many 
activities that helped to unify 
them as a group. Among them 
were class meetings, a weekend

Senior Class 

The seniors have had a very 
busy, yet exciting year! Class ac-

Drama Club 

The Simmons Theatrical Society 
is putting on two theatrical pro- 
ductions this year, The Cabaret" 
on Feb. 24th and "The Dining

Theatrical Society was started 
this year, 1988-1989, to promote 
students creativity in the theatri- 
cal world. Simmons Theatrical 
Society is also sponsoring many 
workshops that will increase 
theatrical awareness. It is our || 
sincere hope that this club con- 
tinues to grow and expand with 
the Simmons community for 
many years to come.

The Activities Programming Board is 
one of the major programming forces 
on campus. Each member of the 
board serves as chairperson or co- 
chairperson for one of the seven com- 
mittees: Annual Events, Performing 
Arts, Special Events, Films, Educa- 
tion/Community Service, Lectures, 
and Travel. The board attempts to 
provide a wide range of social, edu- 
cational, and cultural programs for the 
Simmons community. 
Some highlights of the '88'89 year in- 
clude Fall Carnival, The Valentine's 
Day Ball, pianist Liz Story, lecturer 
Donald Woods, Music to Munch By 
series, Whale Watch, Blockbuster film 
series, and a Red Cross sponsored 
Blood Drive. 

The board requires that each mem- 
ber be dedicated and responsible. 
Because the board has the largest 
student activity budget on campus, it 
is imperative that board members are 
committed and energetic individuals, 
who are able to prioritize time wisely 
and balance academic obligations 
with a demanding extracurricular 
schedule. This year's board has been 
composed of an outstanding group of 
ten individuals.

We started out the year with a 
blockbuster comedy night. Quad-

coming rock band, In The Flesh, 
with the cafe filled to capacity. We 
also welcomed CBS recording ar- 
tists Full Circle. We also had the 
reggae band Mighty Charge and a 
great Acapella night. As always, 
The Armstrong Brothers, Taylor

were welcomed back. Overall it 
was a fun and exciting year.

Amnesty International is a 
worldwide movement that works 
to protect the human rights of 
other people by confronting 
heads of government and de- 
manding the fair and prompt trial 
and unconditional release of pris- 
oners of conscience as well as an 
end to torture and execution in all 
cases. For the first time in the his- 
tory of both the college and the or- 
ganization it was brought to Sim- 
mons as an active group. Spurred 
on by the visit of human rights 
advocate and South African jour- 
nalist Donald Woods as well as 
the divestment movement of the 
Simmons community, Amnesty 
International Simmons College 
earned their reputation as an ac- 
tive group in awareness raising 
and action-taking. Undoubtedly 
this group will remain an impor- 
tant part of consciousness-raising 
on human rights violations 
around the world.

English Liaison 

The primary goal of this year's En- 
glish Liaison had been to expose 
the multiple talents of our English 
Department for the enjoyment of 
the Simmons community. We 
have sponsored a series of 
readings by poets and writers 
who are also faculty members, in- 
cluding Leslie Lawrence, Kim 
Vaeth, Lowry Pei, and Lance 
Dean, in addition, we have co- 
sponsored with the English Dept. 
readings by professional writers 
from outside of Simmons. We 
hope to perpetuate Simmons' 
commitment to the literary arts.

The Mathematics Liaison is an 
important link between the 
mathematics faculty and stu- 
dents interested in the discipline. 

The group is very active in pro- 
moting lectures which introduce 
the Simmons Community to new 
and exciting scientific advance- 
ments. It also takes on a more so- 
cial role in organizing enjoyable 
activities to bring students and 
faculty together. 

The efforts of this special liaison 
help to develop a unique relation- 
ship and a smoother communica- 
tion between students and fac- 
ulty. This is a very important part 
of giving Simmons students the 
best possible experience in their 
pursuits of a mathematical educa-

The Student Government Associa- 
tion has had quite an active year. Not 
only have they done their given tasks 
of supporting all student clubs and or- 
ganizations socially and distributing 
student activity fund money to the or- 
ganizations, but they have also man- 
aged to take their jobs one step 
further and dug deep into issues of 
global, educational and social impor- 

They have given students a sense 
of how much collective power they 
do have by challenging Executive de- 
cisions through forums and aware- 
ness programs. 

They developed a network of col- 
lective organizations by keeping in 
touch with all organizations on 
campus and providing financial and 
social support when needed. 

Some of the programs SGA has 
worked on are the voter registration 
drive in the fall, where over 150 
students were registered, residence 
campus weekend parking, South 
African experience and learning 
days, monitoring curriculum review, 
and the tuition forum, constitutional 
changes so as to include a continuing 
education student Representative 
and an Asian Student Association 
Representative on the Student Gov-

ernment Association Executive 
Board as well as providing an open 
door to all clubs and organizations 
who needed advice, had ideas or 
complaints or just needed informa- 

Through their retreats the Execu- 
tive Board was trained on effective 
leadership skills. These skills were 
channeled to various organizations 
and classes on campus. 

They worked to heighten Simmons 
student awareness on issues of 
global importance (South Africa and 
Presidential elections), issues of edu- 
cational importance (curriculum re- 
view, student evaluations, tuition in- 
creases) and issues of social or stu- 
dent "life" importance (parking, secur- 
ity, supporting awareness weeks, 
sport center plans). 

They didn't work alone however. 
Student Government was in close 
contact with the President's office, 
the Dean's office, and the Student Ac- 
tivities Office. Terri Delahunty, the 
advisor to the group, attended all 
meetings and retreats. Throughout 
the year she provided support and 

With other area college students, 
SGA managed to set up a United Stu- 
dent Government for Boston Area 
SGA representatives. Together, the 
colleges held one of the first student 
rallies since the sixties. 

This year's student Government 
Association carried out many pro- 
grams. But they, like other student 
groups were unable to solve all the 
problems in one short year. They 
began to look seriously into the 
issues of diversity and divestment 
and set the stage for years of prog- 
ress. This year's Student Government 
has made progress with issues, that 
until this year were unknown to most 
of the student body. They are confi- 
dent that this progress is extensive 
enough so that future SGA's will 
easily be able to pick up where this 
Student Government left off and push 
these issues until they are no longer 
issues on the Simmons Campus.

Student Alumnae 

The Student Alumnae Association 
acts as a link between the students of 
today and the alumnae of tomorrow. 
SAA brings students, alumnae, ad- 
ministration, and friends of Simmons 
College closer together by sponsor- 
ing events such as the Mentor Pro- 
gram, Head of the Charles Regatta, 
Regional and National Conferences, 
Annual Reunion Weekend and so 
much more! This year's newest addi- 
tion is the A.C.E. (Alumnae Cultural 
Enrichment) program. This program 
provides a gift to upperclassmen of 
Simmons College to subsidize tickets 
to various performing arts. This way 
students are able to enjoy all the finer 
things Boston has to offer BEFORE 
they graduate. These events benefit 
alumnae, students, faculty and the 
Simmons College Community by fos- 
tering a spirit of loyalty and friendship 
among the Simmons family.

Students can shop or go to the beach with their friends.

spend time outside.

chance to get together with friends before graduation and

Sign up lists and tickets are at Student Activities. Prices

exams, or internships," said Senior Class President Jean 

"Senior Week builds class unity," commented senior 
Jocelyn Dudack. 

"Senior Week insures that people will get together 
before graduation. It enables people to get in contact with 
friends before they leave," added McShea. 

Scully concluded, "It is one last gathering before reality
